Parking on Sundays


The Book of Common Parking (BCP)

New Revised Standard Version

The vestry of St. Paul's Memorial Church recognizes the difficulties that many parishioners and visitors experience parking and offers this guide to assist. Kindly bear in mind the following:

  • A short walk from one of the outlying parking areas can provide a healthful opportunity for reflection and personal preparation for the service. Please take advantage of all parking opportunities.
  • Consider car pooling as a sociable way to reduce the demand for parking while supporting good stewardship of the environment.
  • Avoid parking in spaces marked "Reserved at all times."
  • In some cases prayer may be helpful in locating a good parking spot, but overall the best strategy for finding a preferred spot: ARRIVE EARLY.
  • The Chancellor St. parking lot (location 7 on the map) should be used on Sundays by those with special needs (elderly, families with toddlers & infants, the physically impaired, visitors and newcomers).
  • Some parking areas (locations 1, 9 and 10 on the map) require submission of a signed current church service bulletin to the parking attendant for free parking.
  • Some parking areas (locations 8 and 11) require a St. Paul's parking pass. Ask an usher for a pass if you need one.

Please refer to the parking map below more details.
